Goldeneye 007: Reloaded is a remake of the N64 classic Goldeneye which first showed up on the Wii. The game itself contains little in the way of similarities to the original game. The levels have changed a fair amount, the dialogue and even the story to a certain extent are different. There have been additions to the game (most notably a Modern Warfare style Spec Ops mode) and online play. It's an enjoyable game but has nothing on it's original or other FPS games of this time period.
In terms of trophies this game has a large emphasis on it's online section which is unfortunately very poor. The connectivity issues are endless making playing games immensely frustrating. There is little doubt you'll want to boost the online section as multiplayer is also rather dead, not to mention the trophies themselves are very specific. The story related trophies have all been ordered so every trophy after each dossier trophy is listed in the order it is unlocked. It's therefore worth your while to look ahead before starting each level to see what you need to be going for.
Step One (Completing the Campaign):
- As you will be unfamiliar with the game I highly recommend that you start off the game on 007 difficulty as you’ll still have health regeneration. This will allow you to learn the levels and objectives ready for your 007 Classic run.
- During this run you want to complete every secondary objective in each level to earn Arkhangelsk Dossier, Barcelona Dossier, Dubai Dossier and so on.
- You also want to find and destroy all 50 of Janus’ emblems for Emblem Hunter, Emblem Marksman and Emblem Elite.
- You’ll want to complete all the level specific trophies such as Phone A Friend, Bullet Dance, Royal Flush, Rocket Man etc.
- Finally you’ll want to earn all the generic single player trophies such as Made you feel it, did he? and Master at Arms.
- Note that it is possible to do Step One on 007 Classic difficulty to avoid a 2nd full playthrough of the game but I advise against it.
Step Two (Completing the Campaign on 007 Classic Difficulty):
- Now the real challenge starts. You will no longer get health regeneration and if you die you’ll restart the checkpoint at half health. You need to make use of the body armour pickups to survive.
- During this run you have only 2 focuses. Completing all objectives (which you should be familiar with thanks to your first run) and staying alive. Ultimately you are going for Classic.
Step Three (Campaign Mop-up):
- The last thing you’ll need to do is collect any trophies you didn’t earn in your first 2 runs. This should be the timed trophies such as Haven't Got Nine Minutes, Get to the Chopper, Russian Escape and so on.
- If you missed any level specific trophies or Janus emblems you can also use level select to go back and collect them. Remember to lower the difficulty unless the trophy specifically wants you on a certain difficulty.
Step Four (MI6 Ops):
- Very straightforward step. There are 11 different missions, involving elimination, defence, stealth and assault. You have to 4 star each mission to earn the 3 trophies relating to this mode. Refer to the trophies in the guide for explanations on how to do this. At the end of this step you’ll have earned MI6 Ops Recruit, MI6 Ops Specialist and MI6 Ops Elite.
Step Five (Online): - Unobtainable
- Last but by no means least is the multiplayer. This is the area that will take the largest amount of time to get through. There are a staggering 16 online trophies + the platinum to earn. Sadly they are not straightforward and will almost certainly require boosting partners due to complexity and a seriously dead online.
- Head over to the Boosting Thread to find people to boost this game with.
- If you are going to attempt to play online yourself it is going to take hours of hard work and a lot of luck. Start off on Golden Gun gamemode. Keep playing this mode until you’ve unlocked Au-ned.
- Next you’ll want to move on to either Goldeneye to earn Console Compliancy, Black Box to earn Boxing Clever, Bomb Defuse for Lucky Seven or Heroes for For England, Alec and The Other Cheek.
- Having got all the above trophies completed you should have got through all the maps at least once and therefore unlocked Orbis Non Sufficit.
- The remaining trophies all require you to have reached a certain level. The major level you want to reach is 35. At this point you unlock the Classic Conflict mode. Now you’ll be able to use the different characters and therefore work on the character specific trophies Cheated, The Man Who Cannot Die etc.
- At this point you’re hopefully going to be near to level 42. This unlocks proximity mines for Boys with Toys. Lastly (I promise) you need to reach level 47. Once you get it and unlock the Wolfe .44 you can get Had Your Six and you should be done with multiplayer!
- If you decide to take the easy way out and boost all the online trophies then refer to each individual trophy for detailed explanations of how to go about boosting each trophy. The order you do them in doesn't really matter (other than those that require someone to be level 35 of course).
In terms of levelling up, from my experience pretty much all modes but Golden Gun are very empty. It is not hard to get into an 8-12 player game of Golden Gun and the maps are mostly small enough that you run into people a lot. There is a lot of clustering around the Golden Gun which makes for quick killing if you can work the shotgun well. Obviously controlling the Golden Gun is even better. You should be able to make anywhere from 3,000-5,500 each game which will last between 5-10 minutes. Taking into account the waiting in lobby and loading times it should be around 30,000 exp an hour. Level 47 requires approximately 895,000 exp so just short of 30 hours of legitimate playing.
Note that if you are boosting you only need 1 person to be level 35 and then they can invite you into a classic conflict game even if you are not of that level (1 of the guys in my group got all of the multiplayer stuff out the way by level 16 or so). If you are boosting it is advisable to always have the same person win so 1 person reaches 35 first and they can host and everyone else can join.
If you are deliberately trying to get 1 person up to level 35 quickly then set up a black box mode game. Have the person going for 35 on a team of 2 (if you're doing this with 5 people) then the 3 on the other side. Start up the game and meet in the middle of the map at the box. Don't touch the box, simply let the person going for 35 keep melee killing the 3 guys. The 3 guys must keep running to him over and over. Doing this on black box means you can play the entire 10 minutes as kills don't count towards the objective score. In a 10 minute round, depending heavily on the map, you can get anywhere from 25,000-30,000 exp. Doing this you can get 140,000-170,000 exp an hour (including map changes) so it will take about 3 hours to get from 1-35. If you do this after all other trophies the person should already have 100,000 exp or so.
When playing Classic Conflict, each round have 1 person be Oddjob and 1 person be Tee Hee (other characters don't matter). Both these characters have trophies (Cheated and Butter Hook) that can only be earned by 1 person each round. At the end of the round change who is the person playing that character. If you do this it will cut down the number of rounds you'll have to get through to get everyone all the trophies.
